The Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award winning author of The Swerve joins us for an art-filled exploration of Adam and Eve, “the story that created us.” In his time with us, Stephen Greenblatt will examine the cultural and psychological power of the Genesis story. “Rich allegory, vicious misogyny, deep moral insight, narrow literalism and some of the greatest triumphs of art and literature; all can be counted as children of our ‘first’ parents.”
